I believe Tammy was with us at Clarke. But I don't have any real memories or stories of her.

My first memory of Tammy is from freshman year. It was somewhere close to the beginning of the year. It was at lunch. Tammy apparently got a little too rowdy. And the lunch lady demanded to see her student I.D. Tammy freaked out, and looked like she was about to cry. She didn't know what fate was in store for her. She protested a little, but turned over her card to the woman. The lunch lady looked at the card, then handed it back to Tammy. Then she walked away. Umm... what the hell was that all about? I don't know.

I first got to know Tammy in Mr. Conrad's sophomore year biology class. For awhile, we sat together at a table. I wasn't really thrilled about it. Tammy looked like a real bitch. Her face just looked "snotty" to me. And I think many people viewed her as such. But in all honesty, she was pleasant enough to me.

Tammy had blonde hair. And she loaded it down with TONS of hairspray. I remember Janice Ericson once patting her on the head. And her hair literally crunched! I have to wonder what the long term effects of that much hairspray would do to your hair.

I once overheard Ross Hofmann telling some friends of his that Tammy "had a great ass." But he then went on to say that he didn't like her face.

I believe Tammy hung around with the likes of Carrie Collard, Treesa Carron and Cindy Rohrer.

Tammy got married, and now goes by the name of Tammy Schroeder. And I'm happy to report that they have NOT divorced, as so many of our fellow classmates have. As far as I can tell, she lives in the Francis Creek are, and works part time at Holy Family Hospital. I believe she has two kids.

UPDATE - 1/2/07 - Tammy has sent me a few pictures of her. The first one is of her birthday in 2005. The second one is of her two girls. The next three are of her and Cindy Rohrer, having a good time in Key West. As for the person between them in that one picture... your guess is as good as mine. The final picture is of her, Cindy, and Carrie Collard (and families) this past July.

UPDATE - 6/18/07 - Thanks to Shannon Koch for providing these photos of Tammy (at least I think they're of her) from graduation day, June 4th, 1989.

UPDATE - 3/20/08 - I got an Email from Tammy Franzen. She sent me a few more family photos. You can see them below.

I'm sorry if anyone thought I was "snotty" or "bitchy". My husband says that the blog about me hit it right on. (the ass thing too) I also commented to him that 3 kids later and 15yrs isn't what it used to be. In my deffense of the "massive" hairspray it was the 80's and EVERYONE had big hair. What about the mullets guys. Not to sexy now is it. Burt love the site, I have fun reading it and bringing back old memories.

Tammy is one of my very best friends. She has the heart of gold and a spirit that shines. My father always told me that if you can count 5 really good friends on one hand, your a very lucky person. Tammy is one of those friends. Honest, loving, and carefree. Very carefree!!! We spent time in the Keys together a few years ago and had a blast. (I'll have Burt insert a picture.) I have to admit that I turned in early and she just kept going and going. She is just as much fun now as she was back in HS. Anyone that wasn't friends with Tammy really missed out. I like Tammy's bitch look. It went along with Carrie C. tough attitude. I felt very safe hanging out with the two of them!!
Miss you girl....:)

I remember running into you, actually it was you who recognized me, at the Linebacker probably about 6 or 7 years ago. You may or may not remember this, but I was pleasantly surprised to see you.
I hope our paths cross again at some point.

I recall a little bit of the Linebacker sighting. Couldn't tell you what we talked about, but I can remember seeing you. Finally up on the internet. YEH!! Now I need to get caught up on all the entries.
